Some people get a limo ride to their wedding, but not Manuel Uribe. The world's heaviest man (who once weighed in at 1,230 lb or 560 kg) went to his wedding in a specially decorated bed on top of a flatbed truck:
Mexican Manuel Uribe, 43, wore a white satin shirt and had a sheet wrapped round his legs as he wed his longtime girlfriend, Claudia Solis, in front of 400 guests in a civil ceremony in Monterrey, northern Mexico. The bed - which Uribe hasn't left in six years - was decorated with a canopy, flowers and gold-trimmed bows.
Two police patrol cars escorted him ahead of a long line of traffic.
Uribe tipped the scales in 2006 at 1,230 pounds (560 kilograms), earning him the Guinness Book of World Records' title for the world's heaviest man. He has since shed about 550 pounds (250 kilograms) with the help of Claudia, whom he met four years ago.
Congrats to the happy couple! Link
